Johnston, Morgan Goals Lift USA to 2-0 Win vs. Japan in Front of Record Ohio Crowd

CLEVELAND, Ohio (June 5, 2016) – The U.S. Women’s National Team defeated Japan 2-0 on goals from Julie Johnston and Alex Morgan in front of 23,535 fans – a record attendance for a WNT game in the State of Ohio – in a match that was abandoned in the 76th minute due to inclement weather.

After a thrilling 3-3 draw last Thursday in the teams’ first meeting since the historic 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final, the USA put in a dominant performance in the second leg of this two-game set, controlling large swaths of the game and generating numerous goal scoring opportunities while holding firm defensively. The USA held Japan to just two shots on goal.

Johnston scored what proved to be the game-winner in the 27th minute with her eighth career goal, all of set plays, before Morgan capped things off in the 62nd with her team leading 11th goal of 2016.

With the U.S. in control of the match, both teams began introducing numerous second half substitutions, but after playing almost the entire match under sunny skies, the weather abruptly took a turn for the worse and in the 76th minute the match officials were forced to send the players back to the locker room due to lightning and heavy rain. After a long delay, and with more bad weather rolling in, the matched was called off.

U.S. Soccer is awaiting final word from FIFA as to whether the match and all the statistics will count as official.

The U.S. WNT will finish its preparations for the 2016 Olympics in Rio next month, beginning with the first match in team history against South Africa at Soldier Field in Chicago on July 9 (12 p.m. CT; FS1). The team will play a second match later in July against an as yet to be announced opponent before departing for the Olympics.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Julie Johnston (Allie Long), 27th minute:
The U.S. won a free kick near the right sideline just inside Japan’s half of the field that Morgan Brian sent toward the top of the penalty area. Ami Sugita miss-hit her attempted clearance and the ball fell to Megan Klingenberg, who tapped it back into the left side of the penalty area to Allie Long. Long dribbled into the box before whipping a low cross to the far post where Johnston had gotten in front of her marker to easily redirect the ball into the net. USA 1, JPN 0 (SEE GOAL)

USA – Alex Morgan (Crystal Dunn), 62nd minute: Julie Johnston sent a long ball over the Japan backline down the right wing for Crystal Dunn to run onto. Dunn sprinted into the attacked third and spun a first-time cross low across the face of goal for Alex Morgan who slipped between a pair of Japan defenders to redirect the ball into the roof of the net for the game-capping goal. USA 2, JPN 0 (SEE GOAL) FINAL

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
JPN – Erina Yamane, 1st minute:
The USA came flying out of the gates from the opening whistle and immediately put Japan’s defense under pressure. Crystal Dunn got down the right flank and picked out Christen Press, who was cutting into the box. Press saw her point blank shot saved by on rushing Japan goalkeeper. The rebound fell to Alex Morgan in the middle of the penalty area and her goal-bound shot hit teammate Allie Long. The USA got another crack at goal, but it was cleared away by a defender with Yamane still finding her footing after making the initial save.

JPN – Erina Yamane, 8th minute: Christen Press got in behind the Japan defense down its left flank and cut past a defender before centering the ball for Allie Long, who was making a trailing run out of midfield. Long had a good look at goal, but her low shot right at Yamane who was able to get down and smother.

JPN – Erin Yamane, 46th minute: Alex Morgan muscled her way past a Japan defender to earn a one-vs.-one chance and after creating a bit of space for herself, she unleashed a dipping shot from just outside the penalty area that required Yamane to reach at full stretch in order to it palm away and keep the U.S. from moving further ahead early in the second half.

Next on the Schedule: The U.S. WNT returns to action when it meets South Africa for a friendly for the first time in team history at Soldier Field in Chicago on July 9 (12 p.m. CT; FS1).

Milestone Watch:

  • Hope Solo, who earned her 196th cap, earned the 99th shutout of her career, and with two games left before the Olympics, could become the first goalkeeper to reach 100 before the USA leaves for Brazil. The USA plays South Africa for the first time in team history on July 9 at Soldier Field in Chicago and will play a yet to be announced match in late July.

Additional Notes:

  • The 23,535 fans at today’s game mark the largest crowd to watch the WNT in the state of Ohio. The previous record was 23,101 at Columbus Crew Stadium on Oct. 3, 1999 vs. South Korea.
  • Alex Morgan now has seven career goals vs. Japan, the most she has vs. any country.
  • Morgan has now scored in seven games of the 11 she’s played in 2016, and with four multi-goal games so far, has a total of 11 goals in 2016.
  • Morgan now has 67 career goals and 18 multi-goal games for the USA.
  • The only other time Morgan scored double-digit goals for the USA in a calendar year was in 2012, which, coincidently, also happened to be an Olympic year.
  • Julie Johnston scored her third goal of 2016 and eighth career goal. All have come off set pieces.
  • Allie Long notched her second career assist for the WNT.

Five Things to Know: Haiti's U-20 National Team

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team will take on Haiti in its crucial second match of the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose. The game can be seen live at 5:30 p.m. ET on Univision Deportes Network or via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page.

Here’s what you should know about the USA’s Tuesday opponent:

Haiti Roster
The two clubs with the largest representation of players on Haiti’s roster are Real Hope Football Academy (4) and Aigle Noir Athlétic Club (2). Seven other clubs from Haiti’s Championnat National D1 make it the most well represented league on the team, accounting for 65 percent of the roster.

GOALKEEPERS (2): John Wodney Paris (Roulado), Isaac Rouaud (Le Mans)
DEFENDERS (6): Ulysse Denso (Real Hope Academy), Emerson Georges (Baltimore), Odilon Jerome (ANAC), Yvenet Noel (Ouanaminthe FC), Wilmond Oracius (Viva Rio/BRA), Fardyson Pierre (Real Hope Academy)
MIDFIELDERS (5):
Alessandro Campoy (Unattached), Brian Chevreuil (Chateauroux/FRA), Clerveau Dutherson (Valencia), Abraham Duverger (Unattached), Wendy St Felix (ANAC)
FORWARDS (7):
Ronaldo Damus (Real Hope Academy), Kenley Dede (Don Bosco), Jonel Desire (ASC/HAI), Stevenson Guillaume (Racing FC), Roberto Badgio Louima (Real Hope Academy), Jimmy Shammar Sanon (Montreal Impact/CAN), Richelor Sprangers (NAC Breda/NED) 

M.L.S. and U.S. Soccer Development Academy Connection
One standout from Haiti’s roster is forward Jimmy-Shammar Sanon, who played for M.L.S. club Montreal Impact’s USL team, FC Montreal, in 2016 when his rocket of a goal vs. Charleston Battery was chosen as the league’s Goal of the Year. In his five games with FC Montreal, Sanon recorded one goal and one assist in 150 minutes played. Sanon joined Montreal Impact’s Development Academy in August 2012 and most recently appeared in 22 games and tallied nine goals during the 2015-16 Academy season. 

Sanon took part in camps with Canada’s U-16 and U-18 National Teams before deciding to play for the nation of his parents’ birth, Haiti.

What’s in a (nick)name?
The Haiti national teams have two nicknames – Les Grenadiers, which means “The Soldiers” and Le Rouge et Bleu, “The Red & Blue”, referring to their red and blue uniforms. 

2016 CFU Champions
Haiti comes into the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship as the winner of the 2016 Caribbean Football Union’s Under-20 tournament; the first time Les Grenadiers won the competition in the country’s history. In the championship game, Haiti defeated Antigua and Barbuda 4-0 with braces from Roberto Louima and Ronaldo Damus. 

Haiti also took home three pieces of individual hardware: goalkeeper Jhon Paris was awarded the Golden Glove, allowing only two goals, while Ronalso Damus’s six goals saw him earn the Golden Boot and teammate Roberto Louima was given the Golden Ball as tournament MVP.

A Hot Start
Haiti’s 5-1 victory vs. St. Kitts and Nevis on Saturday marked their best start and largest margin of victory in the CONCACAF tournament since 1984 when they opened group play with a 5-0 victory against Puerto Rico. Saturday’s win also saw Haiti end their seven-game winless streak in CONCACAF Under-20 Championship play, with the team finding the back of the net through Sanon in the fourth minute. Demonstrating a balanced attack, four more players scored, with Brian Chevreuil, Alessandro Campoy, Jonel Desire and Damus all converting. Depending on the outcome of the Panama-St. Kitts and Nevis match, a victory against the United States would almost certainly punch Haiti’s ticket to the next round.

U.S. Soccer Announces SheBelieves Hero Contest Winner

CHICAGO (Feb, 21, 2017) – U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Women’s National Team have announced the winner of the SheBelieves Hero contest ahead of the 2017 SheBelieves Cup. The contest aimed to find a girl between the ages of 13-17 that embodies the SheBelieves spirit.

Conceived and developed by U.S. Women’s National Team players, SheBelieves is a movement to inspire young girls and women and encourage them to accomplish their goals and dreams, athletic or otherwise. The campaign was originally launched in the run-up to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup but has since evolved and grown into a special bond between the team and its fans, taking its powerful message of empowerment into communities across the nation. Through dedication, teamwork, perseverance and success, U.S. WNT players inspire new generations of young girls and women to be better and strive for better; they inspire them to believe.

A SheBelieves Hero is a leader in their community, a confident and passionate individual who empowers others around her and is working to make a difference.

After the SheBelieves committee received and evaluated the many submissions, four finalists were selected. These finalists’ videos were then shared via social media and a poll was created for people to vote on who they believe best embodies the SheBelieves spirit. 

Taking 49 percent of the votes, Danielle Bosland was chosen as the 2017 SheBelieves Hero. Bosland, who wants to be a physical therapist, will travel to Harrison, New Jersey to watch the WNT take on England on March 4.

Jenesis Smith finished second, Madison Bonin third, and Ryleigh Marquardt fourth.

PREVIEW: U-20 MNT Looks to Bounce Back vs. Haiti

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team continues the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship with its second Group B game against Haiti on Tuesday, Feb. 21. The match kicks off at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose, at 5:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on Univision Deportes Network and via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page. Fans can also follow along on Twitter @ussoccer_ynt.

The U.S. comes in on the heels of a disappointing 1-0 loss against Panama last Saturday. Panama’s lone goal, which came in the 37th minute, was a half-cross, half-shot that took a slight deflection off a U.S. defender before dipping into the far left side of the goal.

Earlier that day, Haiti comfortably defeated St. Kitts and Nevis 5-1 and now sits atop Group B with three points and a +3 goal differential over Panama. The U.S. needs to quickly regroup and get a favorable result against Haiti in order to keep their hopes alive of advancing to the second, six-team qualification stage where the top four teams will qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea.

After its match against Haiti, the USA will close out Group B play against St. Kitts and Nevis on Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. ET. That game can also be seen on Univision Deportes Network and via livestream on the official CONCACAF Facebook page.

USA VS. HAITI HISTORY:
The USA is 3-0-0 all-time against Haiti in U-20 qualifying, leading by a combined 8-2 goal margin. The U.S. defeated Haiti 2-0 in the 2003 CONCACAF U-20 Tournament on Nov. 13, 2002, in Charleston, S.C. In 2007, the USA were matched up with Haiti again, in the group stage of the CONCACAF U-20 Qualifying Tournament in Panama City. During that game played on Jan. 17 2007, the U.S. used a hat trick from Andre Akpan to defeat Haiti 4-1. At the 2013 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, the U.S. used goals from Luis Gil and Daniel Cuevas to scrape past Haiti 2-1 on Feb. 18, 2013.

Tyler Adams ruled out for USA
After taking a hard challenge in the 18th minute against Panama’s Justin Simons, who earned a red card and was later handed a two-game suspension, U.S. midfielder Tyler Adams has been ruled out for Tuesday’s match against Haiti. Adams, who had a stellar 2016 season with USL Champions New York Red Bulls II, stayed in the game but was unable to continue and was replaced by forward Emmanuel Sabbi in the 31st minute.

Reaching the Big Stage
Since 1962, Haiti has participated in seven CONCACAF U-20 tournaments. During that time, Haiti has made it out of the group stage once, in 1978, although they were unable to finish the tournament with a qualifying bid. In their 24 games played since 1962, Haiti has a 15-15-5 record.

Since 1976, when the CONCACAF tournament became the qualification funnel to the U-20 World Cup, the United States has advanced to 17 World Cups out of 20 qualification opportunities and nine of the last 10.

The USA’s best World Cup finish came at the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship, where they fell 2-0 to Brazil in the third-place game.

Qualifying Format Change
The CONCACAF U-20 Championship format has changed for 2017 with 12 teams split into three, four-team groups. Previous tournaments featured two groups of six teams or four groups of three teams. Under the new setup, the top two teams from each group advance to a classification stage, featuring two groups with three teams each. In that second group stage, the top two finishers in each group qualify for the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup, and the first-place teams in each group move on to play for the tournament title.

USA ROSTER BREAKDOWN:
On Feb. 9, U-20 MNT head coach Tab Ramos named a 20-player roster for the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. The roster includes one member of the USA’s 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup team in defender Erik Palmer-Brown. Ramos named Palmer-Brown the team captain a few days prior to the qualifying tournament.

The remaining five players play collegiately: goalkeepers Jonathan Klinsmann (University of California) and JT Marcinkowski (Georgetown), defender Aaron Herrera (New Mexico), and midfielders Jeremiah Gutjahr (Indiana University) and Eryk Williamson (University of Maryland).

Eyes on South Korea 2017
The U.S. has qualified for 14 FIFA U-20 World Cups and has its sights set on No. 15 in 2017. The 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Korea Republic will be held from May 20-June 11 in Cheonan, Daejeon, Incheon, Seogwipo, Jeonju and Suwon, with the final draw for the tournament to be held on March 15.
